Multi-Platinum selling and five-time ARIA Award-winning singer-songwriter Katie Noonan returns with her jazz trio, Elixir, featuring Zac Hurren, for a magical evening of music and poetry on the Gratitude and Grief national tour.

Kicking off at Adelaide’s Spiegeltent on February 15, the tour will traverse New South Wales, regional Queensland, ACT, Victoria and Tasmania before landing at The Spiegeltent Gold Coast on Thursday April 18 as part of Bleach* The Gold Coast Festival.

The evening is set to showcase Katie’s ARIA-nominated album Gratitude and Grief, a collaboration between Elixir and Australia’s ‘poet laureate’ Michael Leunig. The show will beautifully unite Michael’s spoken-word poetry with Katie’s angelic vocals and Elixir’s sublime improvisation. The album, which translates Leunig’s poetry into stunning jazz, has received rave reviews for its unique combination of poetry, art and music.

Folk jazz trio Elixir is approaching 20 years in the business. Fronted by Noonan with jazz saxophonist Zac Hurren, the trio has enjoyed enormous success along the way including an ARIA Award for Best Jazz Album in 2011, 13 weeks at #1 on the ARIA Jazz Chart and numerous high profile festival appearances.

Don’t miss this special opportunity to see Katie Noonan, Elixir and Zac Hurren live.
